Full Snow Moon – February 25, 2013

Snow Moon in Virgo

Snow Moon in Virgo when Mercury is retrograde

The February Full Moon is known as the Snow Moon, and even the Snow Blinding Moon.
The Lakota Sioux know it as the Moon of the Dark Red Calves, while the Cheyenne called it the Big hoop and Stick Game Moon. Other names include the Quickening Moon, Hunger Moon, Opening Buds Moon, Storm Moon, and the Trapper’s Moon.

When the Moon is full in a sign it reflects the light of consciousness to the fullest. It is a time to be fully engaged with life in that specific area. This February the Full Moon is in Virgo, ruled by Mercury. But with Mercury in Retrograde, now is the time for contemplation and analysis rather than action.

The Quickening Moon

We’re quite fond of the title the “Quickening” Full Moon. The quickening is used to describe the first noticeable movements of an unborn child in their mothers womb. It marks a time when new life is beginning but hasn’t broken through the surface quite yet. Also, this leaves life open to so many wonderful opportunities  A journey has yet to begin. We are in the middle of Imbolc Season: A time of quiet, renewal and rebirth. While the skies are grey and the ground is white, life secretly begins to awaken. Soon enough, lush greenery will sprout from the earth and life will be abundant once again. One cycle is ending as another begins.The air is also filled with female divinity and fertility, which would make this a fantastic time for fertility and childbirth magick. With all this being said, use this time to better yourself and create the life you truly want. The possibilities are endless.

February Full Moon Personal Inventory

Use Virgo’s energy to look at your dreams and where you are on your path. Take stock of the specific gifts you bring, the ones which only you have to offer – do they line up with your profession or do you still need to find what Buddhist’s call Right Livelihood? Seek your greatest vision, and don’t let anyone block your intentions or talk you down. [Read more…]

New Moon in Aquarius and a February Challenge

Feb 10th, 2013 01:22:46 AM CST

New Moon – 21° 43′ Aquarius

The exceptionally powerful new moon in Aquarius takes place at 21 degrees in the very early morning on February 10th.  Your intention should be innovative and designed to liberate you. As the New Moon Squares the nodes it becomes a crossroads between future and past.  If you find yourself in that in-between state, the liminal place, don’t think of yourself as stuck. Consider it the Dreamtime, or the Ground of Being, where all that potential is, where you are now.

New Moon is goal time, and with the new moon in Aquarius, we’re looking at creative, innovative, exciting and collaborative things. So think about what exactly it is you want to manifest with the New Moon Energy. Be specific and write it all out. Actually write down a few things, a sentence or paragraph.

I was reading a fitness blog about a February Challenge presented by the Movement Minneapolis.  It wasn’t about what you would think… not necessarily about working out or losing weight. Instead it was about, basically, making the most of what you’ve got by driving the top line, that is, adding to the things which help you to thrive rather than just survive.  Perfect for New Moon in Aquarius!
